Description One of the main discussions about agents that provide rural extension is the lack of adequate proposals for the reality of farmers. The exyensionists work according to ethics and morals. Was carried out a theoretical search by made analyzing concepts about these terms and that are applied by extension agents. In This paper discusses how agents act with respect to the aforementioned notions and the conflicts they can cause with rural communities. It was found that the extensionist’s behavior is based on its values, norms and sanctions formation that can be object, which determines the changes that occur in the communities served. On the other hand, farmers do not receive appropriate attention by organisms that facilitate the Rural Extension, ignoring their interests and priorities. In addition, agents, as servants of institutions that provide assistance and extension, lose autonomy during the contact with communities. It was concluded that agents act correctly according to morality, as well as what concerns to ethics, since lowing the rules of the institution to which they belong, which does not always match with what rural people pursued.
El trabajo aborda el tema de la ética y moral en los agentes que realizan extensión rural, para lo cual se realizó una búsqueda teórica respecto a la temática, analizando conceptos que son aplicados por los extensionista. Se discute la forma de actuar del agente con respecto a los conceptos mencionados y los conflictos que puede ocasionar con las comunidades rurales.  Se concluye que los agentes actúan correctamente de acuerdo a la moral; y en lo que concierne a la ética, la forma de actuar, también es correcta, ya que está obedeciendo reglas de la institución a la que pertenece, que no siempre coincide con lo que persiguen las personas del medio rural.
